It's Your Story: Share It With The World
Digital Storytelling Part Two
Saturday, October 13
9:00 am - 10:30 am
The Senior Connection
First presented in 2016, we hope you will now join us for part two (although feel free to attend this one even if you didn’t attend part one!) Learn how to capture the history of family, the romance of place, events of the past or future or the topic you choose as important for you to share with friends, family and the world. We will show you how to combine narrative, imagery and sound to create a short video using examples from the Western Folklife Center's Deep West Video program, the Nevada Arts Council and the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley, California.
